Fatal Jefferson City Truck Accident Under Investigation

As Missouri truck accident attorneys, we were saddened to hear about the fatal truck and tractor-trailer collision on Highway 50 in Jefferson City.

According to reports by the Jefferson City Police Department, the deadly truck accident is still under investigation. The collision happened at approximately 2:30 p.m. on a weekday. At that time, a truck driven by 37-year old Stephen Berhorst from Westphalia crossed a line on Highway 50. When he did, he struck a tractor-trailer.

When the collision occurred, Berhorst’s truck spun around and slid down the embankment next to the highway. It landed overturned on its side. The tractor-trailer being driven by 51-year old Alan Spaulding also lost control and drove off the highway. The semi-truck crossed through a guardrail and over onto East Elm Street. The accident ended when the truck struck a rock bluff.

Spaulding was pronounced dead at the scene of the Missouri truck accident. Berhorst was seriously injured and transported to University Hospital.

During the investigation, one lane of Highway 50 had to be shut down between Clark Avenue and Eastland Drive. Emergency personnel from the Mid-Missouri Red Cross chapter provided canteen service at the scene of the collision. The Department of Natural Resources also had to be called to the scene of the Jefferson City truck accident because fuel was found leaking into a nearby creek.

We send our deepest condolences to the family of Alan Spaulding after their sudden and tragic loss. We also hope that the driver of the truck, Stephen Berhorst, makes a full recovery after suffering from serious injuries.
